Twitch streamer BruceDropEmOff’s main account has been indefinitely banned on Twitch, shortly after the ban of his alt account, on the grounds of ban evasion.
Update: Bruce has since been unbanned from Twitch, but it took a month for his suspension to get reversed. Read more here.
On January 25, BruceDropEmOff revealed that he had left OTK, the organization owned by top Twitch stars Asmongold and Mizkif, though he didn’t provide a reason for his resignation at the time.
He later went live, saying, “The reason I left is because I didn’t want to be seen as the black person that was gonna carry them to the triumph and hold the sword and take all the heat, looking bad.”
He followed up with some strong words for Mizkif, saying that he had blocked him and calling him “weird as f**k” and demanding him to “never come at me like that again.”
The following day, on January 26, Bruce was banned on his alt account, though he didn’t specify a reason provided by Twitch on his social media channels.
After being banned, though, he went live on his main account, immediately risking yet another suspension from the platform on the grounds of ban evasion.

Per Twitch rules: “Any attempt to circumvent an account suspension or chat ban by using other accounts, identities, or by appearing on another user’s account will also result in an additional enforcement against your accounts, up to an indefinite suspension.”
Sure enough, Bruce ended up copping an indefinite ban on his main channel on January 27, 2023.
BruceDropEmOff responds to indefinite Twitch ban
Shortly after his ban, Bruce commented on it on Twitter and revealed that his account is indefinitely banned.
“Indefinite ban for telling the racist off, we live in a world where you can’t speak the truth,” he said. In a reply, he shared his email from Twitch.
We now know that Bruce has been unbanned from the platform, but it isn’t yet clear why Twitch unbanned him.
